Crime Report

This week’s North Shore LAC Crime Report:-

Assault with intent to rob – Chatswood/Lane Cove North

Around 3pm on Friday 1st July two respective groups of friends were in the vicinity of an oval at Chatswood.

A 15 year old male from Killara (from one group) has allegedly approached a 15 year old from Lane Cove North (from the other group) and demanded to know what was in his bag. The Lane Cove North youth has told the Killara youth to mind his own business.

The Killara youth has then demanded to see what was in the Lane Cove North youth’s wallet and then demanded that it be given to him. The Lane Cove North youth has refused to hand the wallet over; it’s at this time that he has been allegedly head butted and punched in the face by the Killara youth.

Police were contacted by a witness to the incident and arrived a short time later. Before police arrived the Killara youth and two of his friends decamped from the location, however police conducting patrols in the area located them on Nelson Street, Chatswood. The youths have observed police and taken off on foot with a foot pursuit ensuing. Police continued the foot pursuit into Ferndale Park, Chatswood West before they were eventually detained on Beresford Street.

The Killara youth was subsequently placed under arrest and conveyed back to Chatswood Police Station. The Killara youth refused to be interviewed by police so as a result he was charged with Steal from the person (other robbery) and Stalk/intimidate intend fear physical etc harm. He was given bail conditions and is required to attend Bidura Children’s court at the end of this month.

Reported to us by ITC Roving Reporters – 27 June to 3 July

Parcel Theft – we were contacted by a Cope Street Resident (the upper part) to say “We had a parcel stolen from my front doorstep, we live up a long driveway out of view so they may have been actively looking. Not sure if you’ve had any other reports like this but you may want to tell people to make sure a signature is required for their deliveries so it’s not left unattended.”
